Had been told that this course was okay by friends but have to say it was more interesting, in better condition, had better facilities and was much better value for money than the Emirates. Play it before it shuts in early 2017! Great track !

It is very challenge course with a lot of water pond / lakes / waterfall. Sand bunkers are also challenge. They have quite long par 5 as well. Facilities... More

It is a big disappointment that such a popular Dubai facility will close at end of January.club. So if you are visiting Dubai before then I recommend that you take the opportunity to... More

I like Al Badia Gold Club and l used to enjoy my weekends there either playing golf or having a fantastic meal in the restaurant. I believe that the restaurants needs to add more attractive items to the menu instead of this redundancy for a long time.

Needs a new lease of life, the F/B used to be world class The course was always in excellent condition whilst the greens have always been on slower side depending on the time of year. No more challenge tour but still holds a mena event With a concession on the green fee with a coat of lokking at

Firstly, the staff and facilities are fantastic. From the moment the limousine drop you at the door the staff look after you. They take your clubs and put on the buggy, provide water with a cool box and place outside ready for your tee time. A challenging course with plenty of water so you need your A game to avoid...
